Runner Shalane Flanagan and actress Lena Waithe star in entertaining new Nike commercial

It's good to be the reigning New York City Marathon champion. If you don't believe me, you should watch a new Nike commercial featuring runner Shalane Flanagan. 

The 2017 winner appears in a spot for the Nike Vaporfly 4% shoes, which she wore during her 2017 race. Flanagan plays a sneaker obsessed version of herself -- who wears the kicks everywhere and may or may not shower in them.

Co-starring the talented and hilarious actress Lena Waithe as, Dr. Dana Sole. The funny commercial also features cameos from athletes Draymond Green and Richard Sherman. 


We will have to wait until next week to see if the sneakers help carry Flanagan to victory at the 2018 Boston Marathon.
